Just in time for the Infamy Miniatures Kickstarter the other day, I managed to finish off Mr Holmes - and I'm really pleased with how he's turned out! The only remaining details to paint were the metal areas, the glass containers on his back, and a few other details such as the hair and leather straps. I've also added him to the gallery for those who want to take a look here.
Again this week I haven't had much time to work on my models, but I have managed to get a little bit of painting done. As you can see, I've now basecoated the yellow armour on the Ork that I'm currently working one, I've decided to paint him as a Bad Moon because 1) I like the colour yellow, and 2) I could do with some practice at painting it.
Recently I was introduced to Infamy Miniatures, a relatively small company but one which makes fantastically evocative steampunk models. As well as loving their version of Sherlock Holmes, I'm also rather taken with their upcoming Uncle John model, not as he is but as the basis for a conversion. So I made a mock up on Photoshop!
Here it is, the final box! As one of my most well known models, it seemed wrong to finish it off without making some box artwork of Fulgrim as well. Unfortunately, the other program which I downloaded isn't as easy to use as Photoshop, so it might be a while before I can make any more boxes. Which probably doesn't matter because it will be quite a while before I have any new models to put on them!
Sadly my Photoshop trial ended a while ago, but I still have a few pieces of box artwork to show you when there hasn't been much progress which I can show you. Here's one of them, my first Warhammer Fantasy box, Isabella Von Carstein. A little bit of background about the model, I painted her for a school project around a year ago just after the model came out. Not quite your usual project...
Here's another box which I've created on Photoshop, this time of my Terminator Inquisitor Lord. I'm starting to get the hang of how Photoshop works now, so this one was quicker to create than before. As well as working on this I've also been doing a more work on the Strike Squad, I've now finished all the stone areas. I think they'll be done in time, so long as I keep going at a decent rate.
I've always wondered what one of my models would look like on the front of a Games Workshop box, and I think it looks quite good! I recently downloaded the Photoshop free trial, because I wanted to try and make some nice looking photos of my models in their natural environment. Once I'd made the picture, I decided to put it onto a box, because Games Workshop box artwork always looks cool.
My name is Chris Nelson, I'm a hobbyist. I started around eight years ago with Lord of the Rings as my first system, however I prefer painting to gaming.
